We're halfway through June already, but there's still time for me to try to read! I have 2 or 3 stories left in How Long 'Til Black Future Month?, so I have nothing to share with you all, except that this book is AMAZING!
What I will do is share what I plan to read this summer (and unfortunately, the tags are too long, so I suppose I will just put the titles and not the authors in there). Links are below the covers, by which I'm judging these books today.
|Jala's Mask, Michael and Rachel Grinti|
I'm a little iffy about this one. I was really excited to see black characters on the cover, but at the same time, this is not an own voices narrative. I do wonder what made Mike and Rachel Grinti decide to write what looks to be a tribal pirate narrative (already problematic), but I'll see how authentic it feels, or if it's just white characters in blackface.
|Reign of the Fallen, Sarah Glenn Marsh|
|An Ember in the Ashes, Sabaa Tahir|
|Buried Beneath the Baobab Tree, Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani|
|A Natural History of Dragons, Marie Brennan|
June 19th update: Two more books came in from the library that I forgot I put on hold! -_- I want to read more books with asexual representation, and the following two were on the list. The cover I'm used to seeing for Radio Silence is really pretty (girl in tv static colors), but this one is okay, too. The 27 Hours cover, though: MAGICAL!
|27 Hours, Tristina Wright|
|Radio Silence, Alice Oseman|
What are you reading this Summer?
